A police report was improperly redacted, yet the finger was pointed at LifeLock for taking action when it came to light, ignoring the fact that LifeLock did absolutely nothing wrong, but in fact, took preemptive action against this data leak. One can only conclude that slashdot editors are fucktards, oblivious to the fact that police reports are public records, and that said editors cannot even be assed to rtfa. Details at 11.

I have some simple advice on how to watch it, for those of you who can actually venture away from the computer and get outside. No tech, no gadgets, just you and the sky, and little bits of rock and ice impacting our atmosphere at 60 kps."
